A romantic quandary...
T

wait, wait.. are you interested in her? that should be the first question..

I'm out of ideas
T

should you consult your supervisor and probably get some co-students to start a promising project? you should not take the whole burden of solving the issue on your own. that's what supervisors are for.

MORE office politics

sure, [email protected]
btw, juno, your supervisor is cool! ask one of your colleagues out, check if he freaks out..

A nightmare situation (any help would be great)

i think the key point here is that you are mentally depressed by the attitude from your supervisor. First of all, don't overwork! you are already on the edge of break-down, it doesnot help to work overtime. Just treat it calmly with a scientific attitude; a lot of experiments go wrong for a long time, that's research. If your supervisor can't see this, its his problem. and it is absolutely not worth it if you are stuck in such working environment no matter how good the project is.

A very silly and unfortuate situation

hmm, then I think it is fine.. human beings at our age, healthy and energetic and full of sexual tension.., I wouldnot bother much about that. but it is an issue dating your mentor, always tricky romance with your colleague

why not phone?.. I only use text for non-important people. and if you want to invite someone to hang out, it literally SOUNDS better..

weight gain :(

i always do sports as a fantastic way to relieve tension and keep fit.. and meet people. do some team sport, it will be great fun! volleybal, double tennis, basketball.. so you will have great body and less stress I will die of pressure if I don't do sport for long..

interesting. and I assume you girls don't come from the same place, so will be apart during the vacation.. sometimes I hope things can be more straightforward, so not to get myself wondering over in the night.. well, it is fun on the other hand.

another affair with colleague.. the forum becomes so full of romance now.
I don't know about the english system, so what is a mentor?

hehe, sometimes, the "x" may be wondering if she likes you herself too.. it is kind of hide-and-seek game; the only thing is that you may not know where you are now as well. I am going through this right now, but luckily not one from my work. i think the good strategy is to take it slowly and first become friends..

do you girls share any hobby? it might break the ice if you can do something fun together..

In love with my supervisor!
T

supervisor? married? .. seriously, try to put an end to it.. next time, try a "ugly" supervisor.. ( i assume he looks attractive)

any updates?

Losing the respect of people in my department..
T

hmm, I feel the most thing is are you motivated to do the research yourself? I don't just think low of someone's ability just because he made mistakes during a presentation. I really like someone who is passionate about the work and is willing to dig deeper into the work.so if yourself is really interested in the work, show them by taking to them initiatively about your ideas, some issues in the previous methods, etc.. to show that you really are into this.

The question of favoritism.. that's another question. better address the first issue first, and see how it goes in, say, a month of time.
